I saw this movie with a free theatre ticket I got from work, and still felt screwed over for wasting my time. Can't believe the high IMDb status. Infantile plot, boring dialogue, predictable and totally unconvincing. It's a film I can imagine being aired on a kids TV channel some Sunday afternoon. I struggle to write the minimum 10 lines I'm supposed to write to post this review, as there's nothing more really I can say about it. I tried thinking of possible metaphors the film aimed to suggest, some unconventional take on things, some acting spark. Maybe it's just me, but unfortunately I can't find a single positive thing to say. Except perhaps that its produced quite OK, but which movie isn't today. So for lack of anything better to say, I'm just gonna finish those ten lines by repeating my second sentence: Infantile plot, boring dialogue, predictable and totally unconvincing. Infantile plot, boring dialogue, predictable and totally unconvincing. Infantile plot, boring dialogue, predictable and totally unconvincing.
